A STUDENT from Grays’ Palmer’s College has been living the high life as she tours America’s top universities as part of an international programme.
A-level student Dannie Slade has just returned from a week-long trip touring the institutes, including Harvard and Yale, and experiencing life as an American student as part of the Sutton Trust US Programme.
Dannie was one of only 100 students from the UK to sample the delights of the USA and spent the week at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Dannie, 17, from Basildon, said: “The trip was amazing, I saw and learnt so much during the week. The experience was unforgotten and has made me even more determined to fulfil my dream of studying in the US.”
The programme provides opportunities abroad for talented young people from low income families. It is fully funded and offers students the chance to broaden their horizons.
A careers fair was also put on for the students where a number of exhibitors across the US attended. Danni will start her university search next year.
